. the rate of workplace deaths is 53% higher! that is bad news for america's workers. but it's great news for mcdonald's or walmart or any of the corporations who are paying full-time employees so little that they're categorized as poor. it is true that global businesses want places to easily pay less to workers without clout. they want to locate there. just like they want to pay people less than their own home countries. but their countries also may not have our minimum wage or our child labor laws or our safe fireproof factories. should america be in a race to the bottom? or should we leave the treatment of workers with, dare i say fairness and equity? but this is not about economics. this is about politics. think about the ramifications of these figures. union employees receive 28% more in wages and benefits than nonunion ones. for women the une advantage is 34%. for african-americans, it is 29%. for hispanics the union advantage is a whopping 50%! union members african-americans, women and hispanics. is it a

businesses in industrialized businesses in america. you can't get rid of the union, you have to live with it. >> that's what we think so. i think it is what makes america really strong -- american working class really strong in so many industries. let's talk though -- you spoke to them before and after the election, are these the kind of people that get demoralized. this was not what they wanted -- >> it wasn't what romney wanted either. >> no. >> the betting money, i think nobody counted on the weakness of the candidate, and obviously the electorate showed them. they probably thought the odds were in their favor, and they were wrong. but there is a wrong term project at work here. they have been working another this for decades, and one election didn't going to change much. >> what is neck for them then in that long story? why do they go from here? >> i think they will keep funding the organizations they have been funding. i see you are tying them into michigan. for the record they say they have no involvement in michigan. americans for prosperity yeah they found
